I love the style you have here. Not so many do b/w anymore and the art of it is a challenge to many. Photos lose depth when you convert...

Geiger Inspired Bodypaint by thebryancrump
Geiger Inspired Bodypaint
Continual Education is one of the most valuable things someone can invest in. If we stay in one place for too long, we can start to take things for granted and lose sight of the bigger picture and our capability.

In January of 2016, I had the opportunity to go to Dallas to take a few workshops with Avi Ram from Skin Wars.

This piece is a result from the Advanced Airbrush Workshop. I have been doing bodypainting for over 15 years and I still have more to learn.

Avi's mentorship, guidance and friendship has helped me take my work to the next evolution.

Our challenge for this class was to create a Geiger Inspired bodypaint utilizing techniques shared with us during the class. More coming soon. Enjoy!!!

Model: Katie A.

Bodypainting and Photography:

Location: Bity Mold Supply, Dallas, TX
Year: 2016

Makeup and bodypaint used:

Special Thanks to Anja Yamaji for helping to make all this happen.

Recently, I met with my friend, BrandiHogan_Art to continue my painting challenge. She modeled for one of transformation pieces. We created a Sun/Moon piece, because a lot of her art centers around it. Here is a little preview...

Recently I went to Dallas for some continual education. I have been body painting for over 15 years and this was my first time attending a body paint workshop myself. Here is a picture of my model, Michelle Escoe, the talented Avi Ram from Skinwars on the GSN Network, and on the right little ole me. My work has already evolved from where it was last year because of this class. 
Ancient of Days by thebryancrump
Ancient of Days
" Ancient of Days " Mural, 2011

Artist: M.M. Bryan Crump for Britton Lodge #434. 

Commissioned by the lodge, Inspired by the original William Blake's 1794 painting, " The Ancient of Days ". While taking inspiration from the original and adding my own spin and interpretation. in the original the figure in the piece is holding the compass. To honor other sacred tool in masonry for this piece, the Plumb, Level and Square have been added with other elements. 

William Blake was an English poet, painter, and printmaker. Largely unrecognised during his lifetime, Blake is now considered a seminal figure in the history of the poetry and visual arts of the Romantic Age.
I have decided in order to give people a closer work at my body painting work, the techniques, etc. I want to support and inspire fellow artists and our creative community. These two images which have been shot for an article in Swimsuit Illustrated magazine are now available as stock and high resolution download so you can view them in super detail. They are also released as creative commons for those that wish to make derivative works. You must give credit to the models, the body painter and photographer- myself (Bryan Crump), #crumpeffect, and also the makeup/bodypaint products used Mehron and Snazaroo. This will help them to gain a larger audience for their products as well. These images were both shot with a Hasselblad  H3D Camera.   Enjoy and let me know what you think. I am excited to see what you guys create.

I have been in the creative industry most of my life and involved with photography and other elements for several years now. Recently, I have chosen to focus on some new types of created images. I am going to be working on images of inspiration, love, compassion, imagination, heart, feeling and exploring emotion and the human condition.

I feel it is important as an artist to embrace things about the world and express ones perceptions and project it in visuals. Sometimes not even interpreting but redefining an image to provoke thought. I want to be an artist that does not necessarily tell others what to think but rather inspires to think and think for themselves or as a community.

If you are a model, actor, talent or just a creative soul that wants to inspire others, bring something new to the table and explore what it is to be human, an artist, a muse and a inspiration to others, then I want to work with you. Curious? Let me know your thoughts.

From classy family portraits to out of this world headshots, Bryan Crump can do it all. Driven by an overwhelming desire to express creativity, Bryan’s art is original and dramatic. With inspiration extracted from the world around him, the vibrant colors in a sunset could set Bryan’s heart towards a magnificent dreamscape filled with beings belonging in fairytales. Even a bowl of cold breakfast cereal might spark wonders in the mind of this artist. “I just want to inspire and leave people in wonder.” was Crump’s answer after being asked about how he wanted to be taken as an professional.

Although Bryan received technical training from a variety of different establishments, including Rose State College, Northern Ok College's MMDC Program, and service in the Army, his craft is primarily self-taught. Bryan Crump’s range of talents include the simplest editing and correction to elaborate modifications, effects and illustration; his skills with a camera are limitless.
“[Bryan] is so much fun to work with. As soon as you meet him you know he’s serious about his projects, but his sense of humor makes everything relaxed. He’s brilliant, there’s no other way to describe him.” Local model Lydia Nova said in response when asked about working with Crump. With over ten years experience with graphic design, Bryan is notably a dedicated artist. Having been featured on the cover of Oklahoma’s Nonzine magazine in March of 2006 and also the cover of the May 9th, 2002 Sunday edition The Los Angeles Daily News for his body painting works, Bryan Crump’s efforts to establish himself as a talented and innovative artisan have not been left unnoticed. Bryan's work is also featured in Distinctly Oklahoma magazine's Jully 2008 issue.

Artist Statement

I like to inspire creativity and vision in others. When is comes to my work, there is always a storm of ideas that I weed through to get the best.

Starting out as an artist of pencil and paper, I worked up to painting and that eventually brought me to photography. Now I merge all of my skills as an artist to create vivid dreamscapes and enchanting portraits.

I am currently working on developing workshops and a few publications. One of my goals is to establish better networking between creative individuals, models, photographers, artists, etc.

I was recently introduced to HDR photography and have been dabbling with experimentation and techniques to get varied results for portraiture and commercial use. Bridal and Fashion photography remain some of my favorite subjects.
